Giveaway: Win 2 Tickets to Harvest Fest 2014

Congrats to Mia Scharphie on being the randomly selected winner of two tickets to Somerville Local First’s Harvest Fest! Mia’s favorite part of Somerville is “The creativity, maker spirit and craft traditions here–without sacrificing a slow food pace of life!” Thanks to everyone who entered and remember to buy your Harvest Fest tickets if you weren’t selected!

As the owner of a local, independent business in Somerville, one of my favorite organizations in the city is Somerville Local First, where I proudly serve on the board. And I couldn’t be more excited about our upcoming fundraiser, Harvest Fest 2014, happening at the Arts at the Armory (191 Highland Ave.) on October 18.

Harvest Fest is not your typical nonprofit gala. It’s a two-session all-local craft beer and food tasting highlighting the best breweries in the area and delicious restaurants in Somerville. You can attend in the afternoon (2 p.m.-5 p.m.) or evening (6 p.m.-9 p.m.) to sip and savor while listening to the sounds of some incredible local musicians.

  1. I just moved to Somerville a few weeks ago. I’m still getting used to my neighborhood, but I’m loving it so far! I’m excited to learn of events like this in the city. There are still so many places I need to venture to. But as of now, I will say that Union Square Donuts is a definite favorite. A trip there is best way to start a lazy weekend afternoon.

  2. Top 5 Reasons Why I Love Somerville:

    5. You’re never too old to go to prom. (Well, as long as it’s hosted by Somerville Local First, and not the high school.)

    4. We put bacon on our doughnuts (thank you, Union Square Donuts).

    3. FACT: Davis Square has more ice cream and frozen yogurt per capita than anywhere else in the world. Look it up. (Actually, don’t look it up. Just trust me.)

    2. Somverville Theater is the only place I know where I can enjoy a beer during an afternoon matinee without getting the side-eye from my fellow movie-goers.

    1. Because Somerville knows that sometimes you have a to take a step back and appreciate the finer things in life. So every September, we all get together and celebrate Fluff! I couldn’t live in a community that takes the gooey white stuff for granted.
